Feb 09, 2010 (03:02 PM EST)
BRANCHBURG, N.J., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TransNet Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: TRNT), a leading unified communications and IT sales and service company, today announced results for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 and six months ended December 31, 2009. For the second quarter ended December 31, 2009, the Corporation reported earnings of $1,136 or $0.00 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1,230,774, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Revenue was $5,775,086 for the fiscal 2010 quarter, as compared to $5,143,972 in the same period last year.
For the six months ended December 31, 2009, the Corporation reported earnings of $103,199, or $0.02 per diluted share, on revenue of $11,640,036. This compares to a net loss of $1,180,343, or $0.24 per diluted share, on revenue of $13,709,236 for the same period of the prior year.
Steven J Wilk, President said, "We are pleased to report profits for the six month period ended December 31, 2009. We achieved earnings as we projected in June 2009. In an uncertain economic environment, we believe we took the proper steps to right-size our products, related services, and organization to address today's challenges - while continuing to seize tomorrow's opportunities.
"During the December 2009 quarter, we increased overall revenue by 12%, to $5,775,086 from $5,143,972 in the prior year. Of greater significance and impact to our bottom line is our 56% increase in service revenue to $2,677,471 as compared to $1,711,386 for the same period last year.
"During the past two years, we simultaneously migrated our product and service lines to address economic challenges, as well as target new opportunities, and increased our profit margins on hardware and related services. For the quarter ended December 31, 2009, our blended profit margins increased to 24% from 4% for the quarter ended December 31, 2008. Profit margins on technical services increased to 27% from 7% in December 2008 quarter. Our goal is to increase our profit margins further as we focus on higher-end products and services flowing from security, communications, and data center management. These complex products and services command higher profit margins and are of pressing importance to our clients. We believe demand for these products will strengthen and this trend will continue. In addition, over the past six months, our business from the State of New Jersey, local municipalities, schools and colleges increased. Due to the impending change in New Jersey's gubernatorial administration, however, our results during the quarter were negatively impacted by a temporary freeze on all State orders until the new administration took office. Many of our State clients are applying for federal stimulus funds, and we believe the receipt and implementation of these funds will have a positive impact on our future results.
"Due to a strong demand for special project IT support specialists, our placement and consulting practice is recovering from the negative impact of the recession. Like many employers, our clients are still reluctant to hire full-time employees of their own. Despite the recession, however, many businesses face required upgrades, repairs, and replacement of existing networks and these projects require experienced part-time talent that TransNet provides. As businesses begin to hire to increase their internal IT staffs, TransNet will provide them with placement services, with a positive impact on our results.
"To further our goal of increasing revenue and profits, we sharpened our focus on our overall expenses. We are pleased to report a reduction of 7% or $105,973 in our selling, general and administrative expenses for the three-month period ended December 31, 2009, and a reduction of 18% or $583,845 for the six-month period, as compared to the same periods last year."
